How Much Compensation Can A Person Receive After A Car Crash?
Nobody wants to be involved in a car crash. Fender benders that result in minor property damage can cause insurance premiums to skyrocket, and who needs that? A lot of citizens, especially those who live from paycheck to paycheck, don't have extra funds to throw away. The only thing they can do is to try preventing auto accidents from happening so they don’t have to worry about getting hurt and paying for treatments. Injuries vary from one collision to the next, but the common ones are:
• Traumatic Brain Injury
• Fractures And Broken Bones
Those are only a few of the possibilities. It is not uncommon for people to lose their lives in auto accidents, either. In fact, according to Florida's Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, crashes in the Sunshine State accounted for 3,135 fatalities in 2018, 3,116 in 2017, and another 3,176 in 2016.
Personal Injury Lawsuits
Whenever a person sustains injuries in an accident because of someone else's negligence, they may want to hire an attorney to recover compensation for their damages. The restitution helps them recoup their losses for everything from medical treatments and medications to lost wages and pain or suffering.

How Many Zeros Are We Talking About?
The Florida legal system is not a get-rich-quick scheme. However, it can help victims live comfortably, at least when it comes to handling their finances after they have been severely injured in a car crash. Various factors, such as the severity of the ailment, current and future lost wages, and current and future medical expenses come into play when compensation is calculated. In other words, the payouts recovered for plaintiffs vary on a case-by-case basis. Still, some examples of previous successful cases will be discussed here to give you some an idea of how much restitution you could be looking at.
Our firm represented a motorcyclist who sustained a severe brain injury in an accident. The rider was awarded $6 million in this case, which happens to be one of the three largest settlements of motorcycle accident cases in Florida. Meanwhile, on another occasion, a commercial truck collided with stopped traffic. This claim wound up being worth $4.7 million. The final example involves a traffic intersection wrongful death suit. We were able to recover $1.8 million for the victim's family.
As you can see, the total amount of compensation the injured party can receive from a personal injury case fluctuates from one lawsuit to another. You won't ever know how much money you will receive until you take action. As mentioned, the initial consultation with us is free. Plus, injury claims are paid on a contingency fee basis, which means clients only pay if compensation is recovered. Give our team a call and discover where your claim stands.
